Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Andy was a great bus tour guide. He made sure our headsets were working before we arrived at the meeting place of our local guide. Our local guide made sure we were all with her and made sure we knew which way she was going. Andy was knowledgeable and funny going to each destination. He also gave each person personal attention. He answered questions and suggested places for us to visit and to eat meals.

My wife and I, to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary booked a cruise to the Greek Isles which sailed from and ended in Rome.... Having visited Italy once before we wanted to extend our trip by staying in Rome a few days prior and at the end of the Cruise. We booked many of the cruise lines tours.... and they were nice. We both agree though that this tour was the most enjoyable. I am increasing forgetful regarding names....but our tour guide, a young American man residing in Italy was absolutely wonderful. We have been on various tours of Italy and they were all good, hitting the big and expected tourist sites, but with this tour we visited many sites, a monastery, a winery, I bought a whole case of wine to ship home!!!! We visited several hilltop fortified towns and it was one of the highlights of the whole trip. They timed everything, particularly rest stops so that I, who often have problems with finding a bathroom, had no difficulty at all. The Bus driver wended his way along country roads in a nice relaxed manner and we both thoroughly enjoyed the ride and were completely relaxed. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the region and in between stops told us many hints about how people in Italy live and how to act like a local that we found very enjoyable, particularly in regards to finding awesome restaurants... It was a full day of sightseeing and we felt for once that we got to interact with regular people along the way and suffered none of the harassment from beggars and street vendors such as you encounter in the streets of Rome. We had a nice lunch at the winery....foods designed to compliment the wines we were given to sample. I am not a big drinker, but when in Italy I do enjoy some wine!!!! I relish the experience of ordering wine to be shipped home which we always save until the family is together at Christmas!!!! It was wonderful exploring the smaller towns, driving through all the vineyards and farms, seeing the homes and gardens.... I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who would wish to escape the usual tourist sites. If I could offer one suggestion it would be to provide more time to explore the shops in the small towns... The sites you will see will make it very worth your while to take the tour!
